mp3 Capture using DirectX

mp3 Capture using DirectX

Does anyone know if it is possible to capture mp3 directly using DirectX? I am trying to record live sound from the sound card and save it in mp3 format. I can capture it in WAVE format using MCI, but is there an easier method to convert it directly to mp3 using DirectX?

(I am using C++ (MFC))

Any help would be much appreciated.

RE: mp3 Capture using DirectX

You will need an MP3 encoder for this, I recommend the BladeEnc encoder (http://bladeenc.mp3.no).  While I have never done anything like this before, I think you'll just have to read the samples out of the recording buffer and pass them into the encoder.
